King Hussein and the Challenge of Arab Radicalism

Jordan, 1955-1967

Uriel Dann

Studies in Middle Eastern History

When the young Hussein became the King of Jordan in 1953, conventional wisdom held that his days were numbered. Yet Hussein and the Jordanian monarchy have not only endured, they have thrived and continue to play a vital role in Middle Eastern politics. Uriel Dann here explores the political history of the formative years of the Jordanian state, uncovering the sources of its durability against forces seeking to fundamentally alter the traditional bases of Arab politics.
